Subject: Truckin' jam
Years ago I had an Acid Test cassette with this jam out of Truckin' as filler. I never knew where it was from until now because it wasn't on the label. It was a soundboard and sounded great. You could actually hear the 'click' of Jerry's wah pedal when he turns it on at the beginning of the sequence. This is my favorite example the band's 'seat of pants' improvisation. It just keeps morphing every minute or two with all members focused and creative. A couple of nice meltdowns. Billy K laying down some killer grooves.
I don't think this audience recording is that bad. My ears seemed to adjust after a few minutes.

Subject: Not quite 5 stars
The Philly Civic Center is one of my favorite runs from 1974. Who could compare the incredible Playin' and Scarlet Begonias to any other versions? They are simply the best performances of those songs available, and the China>Rider is up there with those done in '72.

Unfortunately, thanks to the official chopped-up release of these shows (DP 31 which is now out of print and price gouged on eBay), the SBD recordings have been removed from the Archive, and we are left with this single AUD. Now, don't get me wrong, I love a good audience tape, even a bad one with the right levels can still bring me home.

But, honestly, this one just isn't very good, which is surprising when you consider who taped it.

Jerry Moore is a taper legend, I know, but back before the days of the taper's section and FOB, I'm sure even he got stuck in some bad seats. This tape sounds like it was recorded at some distance from the stage, and if that wasn't the case, than it must suffer from the ravages of time or something. It sounds tinny and very mono; this is strange for a Wall of Sound AUD. There is almost no instrument separation. I can't hear the nuances in Keith's wild Rhodes Piano playing that takes place during Scarlet and PITB. It just sounds harsh and displeasing. I just can't enjoy it. Sonically, there is a lot left to be desired here. Can you really say this is a good AUD? I can enjoy even some of the worst tapes recorded back in 1970, but this just doesn't cut it for me.

Regardless, I am still grateful to have access to the full show. Thanks Jerry.

5 stars for the performance
2 stars for sound quality

Subject: Best jam out of Truckin'...
I've ever experienced. This is one of the top shows of '74 (the whole 8/4-8/6 run is really; buy Dick's Picks 31!) and one of my favorite jam sequences of their entire career. The range of playing and emotion is incredible...totally unique jazz/funk/wall melting space/mind fuck?!?! GD does it best.

"DP 31, Commercially Released"

Get it while you can get it while it's free, get it now or you'll be sorry.

The "Man" yanked the soundboard of this show off the Archive...bummer... It was on the IA for 4 years and then they took it off...wassupwitdat, huh?

A big thanks to Jerry Moore for recording this show and sharing it with us. He is a human being with love in his heart and thanks to Noel Weiner for putting it on etree.

The DEAD HEADS are the foundation of the whole GRATEFUL DEAD scene, the loving, caring, loyal fans. Where would the GRATEFUL DEAD be without them?

This show is 35 years old and they are still making us pay for it? GMAB...

Eat, Drink Be Merry, and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the Love, from Jerry Moore, in 1974.

PS: Damn Good Audience Recording...I am impressed.

Subject: Sound impediments mar the second of of two very fine Philly shows
Undertandably, we want to compliment the free availability of such prime-era Grateful Dead. Admittedly, I know zero about sound mixing/engineering. But I do want an inquiry as to why my ears partially reject this show. Is it too low? I don't know?!

Hilites abound of course - (though nothing near the first night's transcendent Weather Report Suite, Jam and Playin) Like any other head go to the meat of the second set for highest satisfaction rates. Investigations should continue during the following tunes - Me & Bobby, China Cat and Mississippi.

However, evey reviewer must subject themselves to the manna they're offered. There's something unfulfilling here. I'm going to go and properly eat now.

Subject: Not a Drag!
This is a very good Jerry Moore AUD of a very decent show. The China>Rider is wonderful and the Truckin'>Jam is excellent, exploring Other One themes and "screaming whales" feedback -- not quite a Dark Star moment, but almost. And don't miss the stage announcements: those matches and explosives sure are a drag!
